to an broker and do it by paper and still be eligible. we are offering insurance in certain cases. jim is from illinois and next on the republican line. caller: good morning. a fascinating program. .wo questions for your guest you mentioned about the small business exchange and whatnot. my understanding is the small business mandate has been delayed for two years. i was wondering if you could talk about the circumstances surrounding that delay. also, the cms study methodology. why would some businesses see their premiums go up, and other businesses see their premiums go basicallythey are all buying into what is essentially the same market. guest: it small businesses have fewer than 50 full-time employees, they do not have to buy insurance. probably the most significant part of the delay is between 50 and 99. they do not have to comply until 2019. the 50-99 was the biggest delay. , they looked at the time preowned affordable care act and then post and it is the changes involve how they rate for risk. saw a copy of the report. paving. these was going to say is businesses, if they want to switch
to the gentleman from ohio, our friend and colleague on the house ways and means committee, jim renacci. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from ohio is recognized for two minutes. mr. renacci: mr. speaker, i rise today in strong support of h.r. 4118, the simple fairness act. according to a recent gallup poll, 51% of americans disapprove of the president's health care law and for good reason. the rollout of the failed misguided law was nothing short of disast russ. it's played whips by preventing many americans from purchasing health insurance from the federal and state exchanges. through the president's -- though the president promised lower costs, many are facing the reality of higher premiums and a steep penalty if they cannot afford the plans that are offered. recently, the administration delayed the employer mandate for a second time, leaving intact the mandate that requires individuals to purchase health insurance or pay a fine. the bill before us today would ensure that no american would be forced to pay the individual mandate penalty tax in 2014. it is evident to this chambe
